to ask us to make?" >> such as reforming social security, medicare, higher taxes, lower taxes? >> yes. and on the table are all sorts of things that many people value a great deal and we may not be able to afford anymore. so should we have deductibility for second home mortgages? should we have deductibility for high-cost homes? should we have health insurance coverage provided by employers continue to be deductible? if so, for whom, should it be for all? and should we raise the age of entitlement, if so, to what level?" when someone says that about social programs, i want to also hear the answer to the question, "what are you doing with military spending? and how do you justify the tradeoff? we've gotta get the revenue someplace. where are you willing to cut? and if not, why not? when you're putting really valued things on the table. and simply saying that the wealthy are going to pay more doesn't solve the problem. the wealthy are going to need to pay more, but so is what most people define as the middle class, and there are going to be cuts across the board, including the military, i think, in order to make it work. i'd like to hear it now, not after the election.
